No email last week because I was in hospital with dengue fever.

You can read more about that misadventure in my latest Momentos.

May Finance Report

Last month I earned $2,931 and spent $2,735.

More significantly, my affiliate income increased from $326 to $1,540.

Full details here.

23 Ways This Guy Earns Passive Income

A fascinating and in-depth post by Nick Loper from Side Hustle Nation.

I particularly loved the example of one article that has generated more than $30,000 in affiliate revenue from Udemy.

As mentioned in my latest Momentos, I got a nice taste of the power of passive income last week, when I generated about $400 in commissions in three days while sick with dengue and not doing any work.

Get Paid To Travel And Date

Thrillist reports:

The gig, which is paid, will involve a 12-month stint spent traveling to various parts of the world to “go on dates, make friends, and create professional connections” with other Bumble users. All the while, you’ll be documenting your experience for Bumble’s various social media channels, conducting “research,” and occasionally creating editorial content for the company. Essentially, you’d become Bumble’s global emissary.

Eliminate background noise during calls

I haven’t tried the free Krisp app myself yet, but it’s getting very good reviews. (Mac only for now.)

Who Pays Writers?

Who Pays Writers? Is an anonymous, crowd-sourced list of which publications pay freelance writers—and how much.

For example, National Geographic News reportedly pay up to $1 per word, while The Oprah Magazine pays $2.

Quora Sucks For Content Marketing

Over the past 3 months or so I spent a few hours answering questions on the Quora platform in an attempt to drive traffic to my website.

The results were terrible.

Google’s core update

If you’ve noticed some significant changes in organic traffic to your website this week, Google’s latest update is likely to be the cause.

Search Engine Land reports on some of the big winners and losers.


We’ve added Coursera to our list of recommended sites for online courses, alongside Udemy and Skillshare.

The difference with Coursera is that their courses come from the world’s top universities and companies. You can read and view all courses for free, but must pay for certification.

How to make your book a “best seller” on Amazon

Did you know I wrote a book a few years back? And that I spent $26 to make it a “best seller” on Amazon?

Here’s the story.

Until next week, rock on with your legendary self.
